I would like to know if I can use tags like a standard WP blog has for each article.
For instance, if I create a Directory of Lawyers, in a particular entry (like a regular WP Post), I’d like to create tags such as “Lawyers in Brickell Dr Miami” or “Best Lawyers in Miami” “Injury attorneys in Miami” to give an example.
Is this feature already available or can I have this feature with q custom field?
Thanks in advance for your help,

Sorry, but Connections has not built in support for tags. But, that said, I do not see why you could not use categories in their place. In core WP, both categories and tags are the same thing they are just displayed as separate in the admin.
Not sure if this helps, but I hope it does. Let me know if you have any further questions.10/26/2018 at 10:59 am #475765CarlosGuest
Thank you for answering. How about tags as custom fields? I don’t want to use current categories as tags because I’d like to let each user to create his own individualized tags. Again, these tags would work as the conventional post tags, but they’d show in each law firm profile.

We’ll, conventional posts tags are not user specific. They are site wide. You could use a custom fields text field to allow users to add comma delimited words (tags/keywords) but they would not be truly tags and there would not be a way to links to those keywords.
Again, you could use categories. Create a parent category called “tags”. As children categories add such as “Lawyers in Brickell Dr Miami” or “Best Lawyers in Miami” “Injury attorneys in Miami” categories. You can assign them as you normally would since each entry can be assigned more than one category. This way you can link to and filter by the categories. You could even use the Split Categories addon to split the “Tags” category into it’s on metabox so they are separate from the other caegories.
Hope this helps!10/27/2018 at 4:41 am #475796Carlos ChapaParticipant
I just purchased all the extensions and plugins. That Split Categories addon looks promising, but I don’t see it in the admin dashboard. Do you have instructions on how to install it?
I will also send you a PM.

Never mind about the Split Categories plugin installation instructions. I just thought it was going to be installed somehow different because I didn’t see the zip file, but the download link is on your github link page above, and this one installs just like any other WP plugin (thanks for making it free).
Now it’s installed in my admin website, I’ll try to figure out how it works (so far the platform is very intuitive and the documentation very clear). So, please never mind about that silly question. I am still learning….
I did send you an email (from your website contact form) about some information you might or might not have available.

Great to hear you figured out Split Categories! I have a bunch of these single function feature addons. I’m working on adding these as perks for those that have purchased only they the Pro Pack in hope to make that bundle even more enticing.
I did just now reply to your other email :)
